Stephen Jackson has used a basketball analogy to illustrate his point regarding the issue of racial injustice in America.
Jackson, a close friend of George Floyd for over 20 years, joined Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless on UNDISPUTED on Monday morning to discuss the killing and would use a one-sided game of one-on-one as an example.

Stephen Jackson Has Sworn To Get Justice For Floyd
Stephen Jackson has been one of the most vocal personalities since the killing of his friend and has promised to get justice. Floyd, an African American, lost his life during an encounter with police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on May 25. The officers were responding to a report of fraud but, having already handcuffed Floyd, one of them kept a knee on his neck for over eight minutes, leading to his death.
The officers involved were immediately fired while the one who caused Floyd’s death has been charged with third-degree murder.
Several members of the NBA community have spoken out against the killing, with some joining and/or leading protests. Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown led one such protest in Atlanta while Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban took to the streets along with players Dwight Powell, Justin Jackson, Maxi Kleber and Jalen Brunson on the weekend.
The National Basketball Coaches Association has since formed a committee with which they hope to tackle racial injustice and build reform in NBA cities.
